Huawei unveils Samsung foldable rival

Huawei launched the Mate X fin Barcelona on Sunday Huawei unveils Mate X folding phone to rival Samsung Galaxy Fold

The Mate X and the Galaxy Fold take very different approaches to the technology. The Mate X features only a single square-ish 8-inch flexible OLED screen, which folds outwards to give you a huge content viewing area.

When Samsung announced the Galaxy Fold, nearly everyone was really surprised by the phone. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, you can only run 2 apps side-by-side at a time on the Mate X, which isn't too bad but the Galaxy Fold's ability to run three apps at a time is going to be really useful.

While dust was still settling on Samsung's (OTC:SSNLF) launch of its first consumer-ready foldable phone, Huawei went ahead and stole its thunder.

Huawei Technologies has recently unveiled a folding smartphone which it said was primed for next generation 5G mobile connections.

The BBC reports that the Mate X is set to go on sale at a starting price of £1996 ($2,600;) and is due to be released this summer. However, Samsung's Galaxy Fold can't be laid totally flat.

Apple and Goldman Sachs to team up for joint credit card
The Apple Pay card will use Mastercard's payment network, which is the second-largest in the USA after Visa, the sources added. However, its decision to partner with Goldmach Sachs on a consumer-facing product is an interesting one.

When in the closed position you can shoot photos as you normally would using the large 6.6-inch screen as a viewfinder. The smartphone changes the display as you fold or unfold the screen and adjust the contents on display accordingly. Assuming the initial financial outlay doesn't put you off, you'll need to make a decision between the two phones. With a magnanimous 8-inch screen when unfolded and 6.6-inch display upon wrapping the screen around the back.

One of the prototype devices uses the company's proprietary "DragonHinge" mechanism to fold and unfold the screen.

Reflecting the innovative DNA of the Huawei Mate Series, the Huawei Mate X features the Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge, 7nm multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, a high-capacity 4500 mAh battery supporting the world's fastest 55 W Huawei SuperCharge and the brand new Interstellar Blue finish. "For sure Huawei will make more inroads to Apple business in China with the new foldable mobile", he added.

The Mate X drops down to 8GB of RAM in contrast to Samsung's 12GB, while maintaining the 512GB of storage and its proprietary Nano memory card expansion slot.

Despite being seen first, Samsung's Galaxy Fold is still shrouded in mystery - even though it's expected to ship in around two months. It is better designed on the Mate X, however, and seamlessly forms part of one half of the device when folded. To him, the 11mm thick folded device is 6mm thinner than "other foldable phones", while the 5.4mm thickness when open is thinner than an iPad Pro.
